"LISTEN: When your're starting from the bottom and you’re broke af - saving up to get a mattress and a bed frame, that's an accomplishment and I’m PROUD OF YOU."
"They really are especially when you literally have nothing & have to buy everything on your own. You on the other hand probably haven’t struggled to know what that’s like."
"Buying a mattress is literally how I started to build credit for myself. I was poor & lived on cash budget for so long, I had no credit profile. Purposely got a mattress on ‘same as cash’ deal, divided my total, made payments on the reg & paid off before finance charges started."

Thank you for your support," he captioned a pic of himself standing proudly in front of the new truck.
